But unlike Linux Windows apps already expect certain things of the shell, and so do the users. New shells will have to be compatible, at least some of them for those who care.

It doesn't have to be chaos. For example, the browser market seems organized enough.

But even if it is to be some chaos, it's better than stagnation and complete enslavement to the random changes Microsoft decides to implement.
